Description Fabrice Bellet 2007-04-02 14:09:23 UTC
Spec URL:

This package contains the base scenery and aircrafts data files for FlightGear

This package is noarch, it is big because it contains all the available
aircrafts data. It also provides a base Scenery : the area of San Francisco
airport. The spec file has an empty %prep section, because the tarball doesn't
provide a Makefile, as all the data from the tarball is supposed to land in the
same destination data directory.

Comment 1 Jochen Schmitt 2007-04-02 19:27:11 UTC
+ Naming is ok
* Tar ball matches with upstream.
+ License is ok
+ Local build works fine.
+ Binary packagea are ok.

- Pakcage contains no docs.
- Pakcage contrains no verbatin copy of the license

Comment 2 Fabrice Bellet 2007-04-02 23:06:47 UTC
ok. I moved doc files and COPYING to the docdir.

New SPEC :
New SRPM :

Comment 3 Jochen Schmitt 2007-04-03 16:09:14 UTC
+ Package contains verbatin copy of the license text.

New Package CVS Request
Package Name: FlightGear-data
Short Description: FlightGear base scenery and data files

I'll rename this package, because upstream name changed, since version 1.99.5:

Comment 7 Kevin Fenzi 2008-12-18 17:20:05 UTC
For package renames, we don't have a hard policy yet, but I would like to suggest the following: 

- Can you create the new packages with the new names and the needed provides/obsoletes. 
- Post a link to them on fedora-devel list and/or here. 
- Once they check out on provides/obsoletes, I can make the new package names in cvs for you, and you can mark the old one as dead.package and import the new one. 

Does that sound reasonable?

Comment 8 Fabrice Bellet 2008-12-19 15:45:30 UTC

The concerned packages are here :

.fgfs-base is renamed to FlightGear-data
.fgfs-Atlas is renamed to FlightGear-Atlas

SimGear, FlightGear and FlightGear-data new versions are currently released upstream synchronously, with the same version numbers. FlighGear-Atlas and FlightGear are the only two packages that depend on FlightGear-data, so I updated their Requires accordingly. And no other package depends on FlightGear-Atlas. So I see no use in this case, to continue to provide the old names of these two renamed packages.

(I'm maintainer for all the FlightGear-* packages, and comaintainer for SimGear, so I expect to update all these packages in rawhide at the same time)

Does it looks good ?

Comment 9 Fabrice Bellet 2008-12-19 16:34:27 UTC
ah typo in fgfs-Atlas.spec. please grab again from the previous url, if you already have.

Comment 10 Kevin Fenzi 2008-12-21 05:00:39 UTC
Yep. That looks good to me from what I can see.
I would of course still push to rawhide and confirm it obsoletes as you expect before pushing for f10/f9. 

So, would you like to just put all the requests here and I can do them at once? 
Once the new packages are setup, you can dead.package the old ones. 

Thanks for your patience.

Comment 11 Kevin Fenzi 2008-12-23 03:07:30 UTC
Go ahead and add the requests here (use Fedora account system accounts) and reset the fedora-cvs flag when you are ready.
